Not Supported DB Changes Uses Plugins Auto-Template Additional Files Translations  

Introduction
I was looking through the Modification Requests forum here and found a pretty good idea. The basic idea was to add a list of users who would like a name change for the administrators. I added the basics and released it. In consecutive versions I have added the abilities and features you have requested and this is the product. It is morphing into a more powerful, more useful system each and every version.

The Tools

User Tools
Inside the User Control Panel, there is an area that is added where a user is given the ability to submit a username that they would like their name changed to. They receive PM updates depending upon the "status" of their request, whether it is Accepted or Rejected.

Administrative Tools
As soon as a request is added to the database, the specified administrator is sent an e-mail saying that a user would like a username request. Inside the Administrators Control Panel, a new section is added under the "Users" navigation tab, that lists all the "Pending" requests with the ability to "Reject" or "Approve" the request. A user will be notified via PM when an action is taken. When a username is approved, the system will automatically change the username.

Username History
This tool will list all username changes that a user has requested. It will also display the status of the request, meaning that if you reject it, this will be displayed. This tool will be built upon in a later version.

Username History Changes:
In the next version, the status of a username change request has been revamped and no longer includes hard-coded "Accepted", "Rejected", and "Requested" status values. More information will be given at the release of v1.1.0!

Requirements
This hack has several requirements. They include:
  • vBulletin v3.6.6 or higher (This is the minimum version required for the next requirement)
  • The usercp_nav_bottom template hook.
To get around the second requirement, you can copy the cell manually or add $template_hook[usercp_navbar_bottom] at the end of the User Control Panel navigation.

Installation
Installing the product is easy. Just follow these steps:
  1. Upload Files into your Administrators Control Panel directory.
  2. Import the product through the Product Manager.
  3. Click Install Here
Known Bugs:
  1. No e-mail is sent out to users upon username change. Fix: The next version will include a fix that will respect all the users settings on receiving e-mail from administrators.
  2. The setting for PM sender was ignored within the code and uses the userid of the administrator who changed the username through the administration back-end. Fix: In the next version, revamped settings and improved back-end will now properly use a setting similar to this.
Big Thanks!
I would like to give a big thanks to Paul M for helping me with my stupid mistakes in v1.0.4 - v1.0.6! Now all of my mistakes should be taken care of (unless I made a mistake in the disallowed if statement). Thanks Paul!

I would also like to say thanks to Marco for pointing out a possible SQL Injection that was in v1.0.4 - v1.0.6 (It was inside the ACP, and used a wrong variable name / clean type).

And to Dannyloski for fixing my modification on his forum and providing the fix here. Much faster than I did it.

Final Remarks
I hope that you will enjoy this product as much as I enjoyed making it.

The error was because of notice reporting. You forgot to tell PHP not to report the notices.
Hmmm... that's not really a fix, but merely an option to not see any php-errors. I prefer not to disable that php-error-report feature.

You can even go to vBulletin.com site and they say to turn it on. The reason being is that its just a notice and not an error. Nothing to worry about.

I'm running 3.6.8 and upgrade to 1.04 this morning. I am getting this error when checking username request.

Undefined index: HTTPS in /home/XXXXXXXXXX/public_html/forums/includes/class_core.php on line 1591
Also I cannot uninstall 1.04. I get this error.

Database error in vBulletin 3.6.8:

Invalid SQL:
ALTER TABLE `usergroup` DROP `unreq_perms`;

MySQL Error : Can't DROP 'unreq_perms'; check that column/key exists
Error Number : 1091
I looked at 1.04 and there is no uninstall code for this product.

Needs some help here. Thanks!

EDIT: I returned to 1.03 until issues are fixed in 1.04

The extra options should be inside of the admin file mostly. Under the "Users" tab.

It looks like the table isn't added... I guess my install codes don't work.

The extra features are inside of the ACP file and the user profile if you had a user that was approved / rejected one since the upgrade.

I uninstalled this. It kept saying no permission, but there was no place to edit permissions. Yes, I checked the Usergroup Manager. I'm using 3.6.8 so maybe that's it.

Using 3.6.7 PL1.

First off, installed per instructions... Seen the settings in "vBulletin Options" in admincp, fine.

In usercp, no link to change username. Had to read through this thread to find out how to add the link, (Ok, but should have instructions on this in the download).

Clicked on request username, got no permission:
Username Request Permissions: Your group does not have the necessary permissions required to request a username change.
I have more than the required posts set in the Request username options. And there is no options for it in the usergroup manager.

Uninstalling.

Man. Why does nothing want to work. Guess I need some testing. v1.0.5 will be out soon enough with all this.

Question

Hello I get this error when testing from a test user account:

Username Request Permissions: Your group does not have the necessary permissions required to request a username change.

Please let me know how I can do this? I have looked in the usergroup manager, and there are no options there.

Thanks.
